Brit expat, lived in Asia 22 years, Hong Kong, Philippines & Thailand. Small business owner specialising in luxury travel & accommodation and related services. Married, father of 4 with one on the way! Travelled extensively for business & pleasure since 1975, now settled in Hua Hin, Thailand
Bangkok (Town), Thailand
Beware of the weather, both areas prone to heavy storms in September and ferrys frequently get cancelled in both locations. Having said that, Samui/Pha Ngan would be my personal choice, more laid back, less expensive about 8 years ago
Very good time of year for travel in Thailand, though occasionally still get some heavy downpours about 8 years ago
Head to Bangkok soon, last trip was in 08. Any good restaurants & pubs to recommend? Not on budget, not an issue as long as it's good. Tks!
Queen Vic, Sukhumvit Soi 23, great all-day breakfasts and roast dinners, great selection of beers, and very handy for Soi Cowboy if you're that way inclined about 8 years ago
